have the defense budget after the sequester which is 50% higher than it was in 2000 in real dollars, before the whole bush war machine got cranked up, et cetera. they didn't get the memo the cold war is over. the american people said stop it, syria. we don't need this war machine. they can cut substantially, but instead the republicans will fight to raise it. democrats want revenue. they blew it in the fiscal cliff bill when they extended permanently $4 trillion of tax cuts for the upper part of the households in america. low income people weren't going to be impacted anyway, we never should have extended those taxes. you can't get them back now. it's permanent. and so there's no revenue except trivial loophole closing which will never happen because the lobbies dominate the process. and then finally, if i could just say, president obama stuck his toe in the water on entitlement reform, but it was the wrong toe. he said, you know, chain cpi. well, that means the person on minimum benefits is going to get hit if they had no other income. $9,000 a year, they're going to get hit. where

in the mainstream media. the focus has been, and the defense of the republican party, is they're so concerned all of a sudden about all of these people who don't have insurance and they're getting these notices and they don't know why. you know why they don't know why? is because they haven't read the law. i want watch some of this hearing today with kathleen sebelius, the health and human services secretary. georgia congressman, your doctor, you can't tell me you've read this law. marsha blackburn, we're not going to let you off the hook either. i think these republicans out to come out, raise their right hand and say i have read obama care, first page to last page. they wouldn't oh be bringing up these issues if they knew. it is clearly stated in the law about what happens to people who are going to lose the junk insurance. but the republicans have taken it, and they hoodwinked some of the people in the mainstream media to believe this is really a bad deal, and what obama is really doing is, well, he's screwing you. come on, folks. this is about moving america forward. john f. kennedy, we play

all over the country. so this ad is offense, but really it's a defensive ad to try to get them as far away from here -- from the republican party here as possible. >> and i'm anxious to see how many republican governors who are up for re-election are trying to get into the state capitol are going to bring ted cruz over for a backyard barbecue and say, hey, i think just like you do. we'll see. >> can i say something, ed? >> yes. >> i was at a -- bill clinton's event with terry mccaulive yesterday in dale city, virginia. and what was really strike something mccaulive has made ted cruz a central part of his speech. he was out there campaigning for ken cuccinelli. andterry mccaulive is saying why didn't he disassociate himself from him? why didn't he have him out here. virginia has a lot of government employees. so cruz is a real problem for cuccinelli in virginia. >> interesting. one week from tomorrow. late-breaking news today. a federal judge has ruled the abortion restrictions passed by the texas legislature in july are unconstitutional, and will not take effect as planned on tuesday.
